RAK Day 2015
SmithValeriote volunteered at the Guelph General Hospital for Random Acts of Kindness Day on November 6th, 2015. Parking was paid for by SmithValeriote and volunteers were happy to see the smiles on people's faces.
This is the 6th year that Random Act of Kindness (RAK) Day will be celebrated in Guelph! Each year the momentum has grown, and we are energized as a community to continue those acts of kindness throughout the year. The Guelph Community Foundation is the Guelph Headquarters for Random Act of Kindness Day.
RAK is an opportunity to do something kind for someone else, to appreciate fellow citizens and for community building – it’s NOT about fundraising or giving money – just a day to celebrate kindness. Simple acts of kindness are endless; buy someone a coffee, congratulate someone on a job well done, offer to drive someone to an appointment, rake leaves for a neighbour or visit a seniors centre.
Random Act of Kindness Day has become a day that employers celebrate the hard work of their employees.
Even though kindness should be part of our everyday life, it's easy to get busy and sidetracked. Our hope is that Random Act of Kindness Day reminds people that to bring kindness to the top of their list - not just today, but every day.
